Mama who bore me
Mama who gave me
No way to handle things
Who made me so sad

Mama, the weeping
Mama, the angels
No sleep in Heaven
Or Bethlehem

Some pray that one day
Christ will come a-callin'
They light a candle
And hope that it glows
And some just lie there
Crying for him to come and find them
But when he comes they don't know how to go

Mama who bore me
Mama who gave me
No way to handle things
Who made me so bad

Mama, the weeping
Mama, the angels
No sleep in Heaven
Or Bethlehem

    General CommentThis song is the opening number of the musical Spring Awakening. Wendela sings it.

    Her character seems to be lost when it comes to sexuality. She doesn't know how everything works...and she wants to...

    this song is about how her mother gave her no way to handle the issues she's having with understanding her raging hormones
